NEW DELHI: Golfers have taken the lead in announcing the first sporting event in India since the country was placed under COVID-19 lockdown in late March.

Top Indian professional golfers Shubhankar Sharma and Gaganjeet Bhullar will join former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev and Murali Kartik for an exhibition match to raise funds for COVID Relief at Delhi Golf Club on July 11.

The match is inspired by last month’s US exhibition featuring Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, and NFL superstars Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
